Introduction to Critical Finance Law
Assistant Professor of Law at the University of Warwick
This work brings to bear on the law-finance nexus a range of critical theoretical tools to produce surprising and stimulating results. While aimed at final year undergraduate and postgraduate students of law, economics, and sociology, the broad theoretical sweep of these lectures (bringing in thinkers such as Chrysippos, Deleuze, Epicuros, Feuerbach, Freud, Keynes, Luhmann, Lukàcs, Marx, Nietzsche, Simmel, and Spinoza), and the omnipresence of finance (and its law) in our world, will make this text a valuable resource for anyone turning their minds to the current conjuncture.
